HERKIMER — Girls see bullying at school on a daily basis, but they don’t necessarily know why bullying occurs.
The Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways will offer a program to girls in second through eighth grades that will give them the tools they need to understand the dynamics of bullying and identify ways to help themselves if they are being bullied or help others that are dealing with a bullying problem.
The program, Bullying and Helping Hands, will take place on from 6 to 7 p.m. on Feb. 10 at Herkimer BOCES, 352 Gros Blvd., Herkimer. Girls that attend will earn a “Stop Bullying” fun patch.
Girls that attend the program will take part in the Girl Scout Leadership Experience and will develop a sense of self, positive values, healthy relationships, resolve conflicts and educate and inspire others to act.
The registration deadline is Jan. 30 and the cost to attend is $2 per girl. Girls that are not already registered Girl Scouts can attend the program by paying the additional Girl Scout registration fee of $15. Financial assistance is available.
